Please help us hybird owers very unsafe car with ima update Honda want put it back to org spec. Might want to look into some Honda hybrid forums to see what others are doing. The contact was attempting to accelerate from a traffic stop but the vehicle was unresponsive. Shame on them for this travesty of engineering. I have taken it to the dealer and they are aware of the failure, but are only willing to help me with 25% of the bill because I performed my own transmission fluid change and the warranty is up.
There was an abnormal burning odor coming from the vehicle and the vehicle was taken to the dealer. The approximate failure mileage was 44,000. However, these occurrences should be preventable, if the government would investigate. When adding transmission fluid to your Civic, be sure to add it slowly as the transmission fluid capacity is reached quickly and it is difficult to remove excess fluid if you overfill. The fuel efficiency has reduced by ~10 mpg, which is infuriating, but there is a larger safety issue because of the limited battery power available for acceleration.
All maint done when needed. This video shows you how to add transmission fluid to your 2006 Honda Civic. It looks like a manufacturing defect. This time I was unable to hold back the car with both feet on the brake. It has had 1 transmission replaced, motor mounts, clutch and the same problems still exist. I told the serviceman exactly where I was when this problem happened, he said he was going to have a driver go up those hills and see if the car will duplicate the problem. Honda should have done a recall with this issue! All of this happened in under 30 seconds.
The shop that put the wrong fluid in owes you a used transmission with similar or fewer miles installed and serviced, at no cost to you. This may be in part as the events cannot be readily reproduced to have the issue fixed. A local mechanic stated that the vehicle was not included in recall 07V402000 exterior lighting:brake lights:switch the contact called the manufacturer who offered no assistance. I was nearly side-swiped the first time after the battery update when I was caught by surprise at the utter lack of power as I tried to turn into traffic. The engine was then turned off and restarted 1 minute later. We believe this issue needs to be fix especially in the event that the vehicle is parked in a steep slope that will cause the vehicle to accelerate and potentially cause a major accident. I found a safety recall for the same model year that was put out while my car was in the dealer's possession.
I don't think I'll ever buy another Honda. They performed a basic diagnostic test and told me the car is ok to drive and nothing is visibly wrong with it except for the dent on the front bumper. By some merciful force, the car hit the mud embankment on the side of the road and thankfully no other cars were on the road. When the vehicle is shifted to either drive or reverse, the vehicle would suddenly lurch even though the foot is on the brake pedal. A few times where my wife was driving the vehicle she didn't exert enough force on the brake pedal and caused for the vehicle to move even though it was not intended. It has gotten to the point where I don't feel safe pulling out into traffic without more room between cars than I've typically needed.
Everything was back to normal. The approximate failure mileage was 44,000. The manufacturer was contacted and stated that they were aware of the failure but there was no repair available. Intermittently, but repeatedly, when accelerating, especially from a stop to turn left through a gap in traffic or to merge on a freeway from the entrance ramp, a dangerous situation has occurred because the engine-battery combination does not supply adequate power and acceleration. It slips, shakes like it is going to explode even though I take off gently and slowly. They ran diagnostics, said nothing was wrong and sent me on my way.
When the vehicle is shifted to either drive or reverse, the vehicle would suddenly lurch even though the foot is on the brake pedal. In the past this car has been serviced several times for a recall due to a problem with the cvt continuously variable transmission because it judders after coming to a stop. They said that they have not had any other complaints of this. I called because I had a problem with my car keys code and they told about this and they said sorry because they do not know why I was not notify about this I very disappointed because that is very dangerous and I do not get notify at all, I had 3 cars with the Honda all 3 are lease cars so it is not excuse that they cannot contact me also I am living T the same place for more than one year and I got my Honda bill every month. Any reasonable estimate of how many more miles I should be able to drive the hybrid with a new transmission, given the batteries last that long? Took it to Honda dealer, who confirmed low power assist and without conferring with me reprogrammed the power assist software and pronounced it fixed. It just had the clutch and motor mounts replaced 2 weeks ago!. When I got home, I called american Honda and I was told.
On top of all this Honda won't release the patents so that you can buy the parts needed to fix it on your own. I plan to investigate further in thanks that I am alive. Went to a Honda dealer for inspection and confirmed that wrong fluid was used and sample saved. The warranty you get is only on the transmission. I would very much appreciate a quick response as I depend on this vehicle which needs to be fixed right away. The vehicle was not further repaired.
I have owned 2 Honda Civics non-hybrid , and I have been a satisfied Honda customer until I bought this hybrid. In a panic, fearing I would hit someone crossing in front of my path, I attempted to shift the car into park or reverse just to stop it from continuing forward. The contact continued to experience the failure. Since the acceleration problem did not occur anytime during the service test drive, the dealer was unable to find anything wrong that would cause the car to accelerate unexpectedly. The contact owns a 2006 Honda Civic hybrid. I am a hospice rn and drive my car many miles. After stopping at the second stop sign, when I pressed on the accelerator, the car would not move, after I let the car roll back and I parked on the curb for 5 minutes with the car idling, finally the car finished going up the third hill and I made it to the drs.
